Whimsy in the Kitchen


We are not the type to entertain guests. But I still find butter/cheese/jam spreaders handy. The set received as part of a wedding gift are fading after all these years, though still useful, so I decided to treat myself to more if found at a reasonable price.

My search started with the name inscribed on the stainless steel blades – Boston Warehouse. From there I ended up on evil Amazon, which indeed offered something cute for a good price. It’s a shame they’re so convenient over brick and mortor stores, causing locals to struggle, yet that same day shipping (and sometimes delivery!) is compelling.

Anyway, below is what I purchased. They match our silly refrigerator magnet, the clean an dirty opposites presented in a mythical if primary colored way. I'll post that link later if I can find it.
These are hand painted, or so it's claimed.
Do you like the unicorn myth? What about topping spreaders, do you consider them a waste of space or useful?

  1. Those are TOTALLY cute...however I am not a unicorn person, what I mean is that I just never got excited over them. Are there a lot of myth about the unicorn? Useful on the spreaders, if you use them. I use a kitchen knife!! haha...I understand about your issue and I am sorry for you just wanting to be a home person....but not sorry if that is what makes you happy and complete. I am a social person who is struggling to hold on to that as long as I can. Different folks make the world go round!!

    1. I was really into unicorns as a young girl. Now it's more of a lark. :) Best wishes on feeling able to do what you love. Take care, my dear.

    1. And I used Amazon points, so no actual money went toward them. :)

  5. So cute. We used to entertain all the time, but very little now. We have many sets and I love them all. They are a fun way to spread whatever on whatever. Pun intended.

    Have a fabulous day, Darla. Big hug. ♥

  6. If it puts a smile on your face, then that's all you need!
    We don't really entertain, nor do we put spreads on much. Our butter knives are used for everything; we are heathens!

    1. Ah, you're not a heathen. If the originals hadn't been a gift, I'd never have sought more. :)
